"We found K9 Tutoring on Thumbtack for our dog, Bubba. He was a 7 month old Goldendoodle at the time, with a lot of great energy and a stubborn personality to train! We had read good reviews and watched the training videos and decided to reach out to Scott. From the beginning he was very attentive and helpful. In talking with him, we learned that he is very knowledgeable about dogs, their habits, and positive ways to train them- which is exactly what my fiance and I were looking for. He provided a few training options and we chose to have him stay with Scott and his family for 7 days. We wanted Bubba immersed in the environment we wanted to create and then translate that once he came home. We were nervous to drop him off, but they made it very easy because we knew he was in great hands! They sent us pictures of Bubba hanging out with his family and videos of him training throughout the week, which we both throughly enjoyed! Not only was Bubba very happy, but he was learning! We showed our family members and friends the videos and they were all very impressed! When we picked Bubba up, he truly was a different dog. Since his week stay, he has stopped jumping on counters and people. His loud bark when we are out for walks has become more controlled, and he is learning to control his excitement. The training doesn't end once the week is over, however Scott provided us with the tools to train him confidently. We are so pleased with the progress he is continuing to make and would refer K9 Tutoring to anyone! Thank you, K9 Tutoring!"

"Here is a little history, we adopted a tree walker coonhound from a shelter in Tennessee and brought him home to Wisconsin. The first month was ok as we all got adjusted to each other. There were counter surfing, mouthing and dominance issues from the beginning. We knew we had a stubborn ALPHA, ALPHA male but we were working through it. The dog and I had an altercation over a rawhide where he became very aggressive and tried to bite me. From that day forward he would try to attack me unsolicited any time he saw me or heard my voice. It got so bad I would have to lock myself in a room so my wife could let him out. I am 6',1" tall and 220 lbs, this is the first time in my life with all the dogs I've owned that I was afraid of a dog. We talked to many behaviorist's whom all said we should just rehome the dog and had no answers for us. I was determined not to give up and make things work because I knew that this was a good dog deep down inside. That is when I was recommend to Shelly at "Hair of the dog that bit ya". I got a great feeling from her right away on the phone and was intrigued by her explanation of how she handles her training of dogs (it was a much different approach from what I was hearing from everyone else). This is a large breed hunting dog who is aggressive and she knew exactly how to handle it. She came out the very next morning to a situation where everyone in the house was uneasy and afraid of this dog who now was in total control of the situation. Long story short after two hours Shelly had broken the dog had him taking commands from both my wife and myself. We felt like we had our lives back and believe it or not the dog seemed happier that he now knew the pecking order. This was truly a Christmas miracle for my entire family. The picture attached is from the same day where that morning my dog wanted to kill me and what he was like by the afternoon! I cannot thank Shelly enough and I am so excited for our new life together with Bohannon. Todd & Shelly Bloom"
